WASHINGTON (AP) -- Mitt Romney is giving a campaign-trail twist to an inspirational slogan from the TV series "Friday Night Lights" as he rides an upswing in polls after last week's debate.

The coach of the football team at fictional Dillon High School in rural Texas would build up the Panthers by saying, "Clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose!"

 "Friday Night Lights" aired on NBC and DirecTV over five years, ending last year, and remains a Romney favorite.

The Republican presidential candidate has been repeating a version of the line for several days on the campaign trail. His campaign has sent fundraising email with the motto, and it's now at the top of Romney's Facebook page.

For Romney, the slogan has become, "Clear eyes and full hearts -- and America can't lose."
